Publisher's Summary

Abigail Haddock is stunning, sensible, and some would say...stuffy. But it's not really her fault. She was raised in one of Wessco's oldest, most affluent, aristocratic families - "stuffy" is their middle name. So is successful. Abby's working overtime to distinguish herself as a top-notch physician, just as her family legacy demands.

She doesn't have time for nonsense.

Tommy Sullivan's all about nonsense.

Sure, he's an elite bodyguard with lethal skills and co-owner of the renowned, S&S Securities Firm - protector of the wealthy and titled. But he's also rowdy, fun, and thoroughly irresistible.

Tommy knows how to have a good time, and he's never seen someone more in need of a good time than Abby. The lass needs long, wet, filthy kisses - STAT - and he's just the man for the job.

It doesn't take long for a wildly sexy, sinfully satisfying, no-strings attached arrangement to turn into something more. Something sweet and addictive and real. But Tommy and Abby are too royally stubborn to admit it.

Opposites attract, everyone knows that. But can their red-hot relationship last - can they love...for forever?

Feedback

I had such high expectations for this book because the first 3 royally books were amazing!!! I was disappointed to say the least with the story. There was hardly any action, not much conflict, or secrets. I never had the feeling of I can’t put this book down like I did with the first 3. The love stories for the first three were breathtaking, I feel in love with each character. I did not fall in love with these two and I was so excited to hear Tommy’s story but it was sadly a let down. Also, the male voice did not fit with how Tommy was described. Sad!!

He is a charmer!

If you are looking for a feel good romance, with a little angst, some humor and passion filled story, then Emma Chase is the author you are looking for! Dirty Charmer is the 5th book in her Royally series, but it stands alone and pushes all the right buttons! Abigail comes from royalty, is smart, beautiful and on the way to becoming a talented heart surgeon. When she is in need of security, Tommy Sullivan is assigned to her charge. It's not the first time she has met this cocky, good looking, fiercely protective man. But their chemistry is something that cannot be denied. They do their best to stay away from each other, but circumstances and advice lead them to a no strings attached fling. We all know how those work out though. Or is he really the player he appears to be? This is a fun listen! Abby and Tommy are filled with passion, not only in bed, but their entire relationship. Witty banter and emotional onslaughts all show how much these two are able to care. We have the pleasure of meeting the families, enjoy their points of view but when it comes down to it, will these two ever fit in each other's lives? Will coming from different classes of society may be the deciding factor? Will other women be the problem? Different goals in life? Give this a listen. I know I was shaking my head at times, frustrated and crazed by decisions and other times smiling like crazy. It's fun and easy and a pleasure to listen to.

Andi Arndt and Rupert Channing bring it all to life. These seasoned performers know exactly how to play their characters and they nail each scene. Better choices could not have been made for this entertaining story.

Tommy and Abby

It is so good to be back in this world. I am a huge fan to this series. This is about Tommy who has been around since the beginning and it was good that we get his story and HEA. Keep these stories coming, Emma Chase. I love all of these in this series. Andi did amazingly as always and I LOVED Rupert....

3 STARS!

Dirty Charmer is the first book in a spin off series of the Royally Series. We met Tommy in Royally Endowed as he was assigned as Ellie’s bodyguard. This is his and Abby’s story. As a huge fan of Emma Chase and the Royally Series I couldn’t wait to read this one. Sadly it missed the mark for me. The plot felt underdeveloped. There was some unnecessary drama that didn’t really need to be there in my opinion an it took away from the overall story. There was something missing between Abby and Tommy as well. They didn’t have the same spark that other Emma Chase couples have in the past and I couldn’t connect with them. Abby comes from an aristocratic family and is studying to be a surgeon. She was so heavily involved in her schooling and trying to impress her family with her education and career she really didn’t have any other character traits that stood out. Tommy was the fun immature at times bodyguard trying to teach Abby that it is okay to let go and have a little bit of fun. Soon this pairing comes with complications among Abby’s family that was all very predictable.

The narration by Rupert Channing was done well. I am not sure Andi Arndt was the right fight and think that a natural british speaking narrator could have made all the difference.

Randy and Rugged

Tommy has got to be the overall sexiest Brit in the series.What you see is what you get,down and dirty.HubbaHubba.Abby is one lucky heroine.Rupert did a superb job narrating and Andi is great as usual but her British is a little too snotty and voice over for Tommy tends to sound a bit Bostonian.Still I love both their narration and the characters and the story.Sexy,thrilling and heartwarming.

Worth the wait!

I’ve wanted Tommy’s story for a long time, ever since he was a bodyguard in the first royal books, and he was worth the wait. He and Abby were charmingly mismatched and perfect together. Fabulous narration by Andi Arndt & Rupert Channing.

Mixed Feelings

With this one the story was simple and cute.

It is set in Britain 100 percent. He’s a security guard she’s of Royal lineage.

I liked the story as a whole.

The narration is where I run into hesitation.

Andi Ardnt is fabulous but most definitely American. She did a pretty good job most of the way through with some slip ups.

Rupert Channing was the male and he just sounded off. I can’t pin point it as I remember liking him as an Aussie in a different book.

Together it just made for a rough go.

Perfection

I loved everything about this story. Abby and Tommy have mad chemistry and the way their relationship ebbs and flows is beautiful. Andi and Rupert do an amazing job of narrating. The ending is especially sweet for this surgeon and security expert as they navigate their very different families to build one of their own. Highly recommend.

LOVED ABBY AND TOMMY!!!!

Looking for a sweet, sexy listen with some great narrators, look no further than Dirty Charmer by Emma Chase. It is a part of the Royally Series, but it can be listened to as a standalone.

Emma Chase picked the perfect title for this one because Tommy is truly a “dirty charmer.” He exudes sex appeal and likes to talk dirty, especially to Abby, but he is also quite the charmer. He certainly knows what buttons to push where Abby is concerned, but there is just something so special about him.

Abby is a planner, and she can be a bit “stuffy,” but she has grown up in an aristocratic family. She also likes routine and structure. She is driven as well. She has to be if she is going to be the surgeon she has always dreamed of being.

When Tommy is hired for security, her world is turned upside down. She had already met Tommy years before, and he left quite the impression...one she has mixed feelings about. Despite the seriousness of Tommy’s job, he is also fun, completely opposite from Abby. He brings some adventure into her life, and this was one of those stories in which I loved watching the two characters fall for one another.

The narrators were spot on. Andi Arndt brought Abby to life. She captured the essence of who Abby was. I had never heard Rupert Channing narrate anything before, but I do LOVE his voice. This is a sure win if you like an opposites attract tale. The two narrators make it a very quick listen. The only regret I had was that it ended way too soon for me!!!!

Dirty and charming!

There's just something special about revisiting a story you love and falling in love with all over again, only this time through a different medium. Dirty Charmer is the latest release from bestselling author Emma Chase, and I've got all my fingers and toes crossed that it's just the first in a new spin-off series from Chase, this time featuring the men and women of S&S Securities, founded by the former royal security detail in the Royally series. This audiobook is narrated by the legendary Andi Arndt and the always spot-on Rupert Channing.

Dirty Charmer is the story of Thomas Sullivan, former member of the royal protection team for Wessco's Prince Nicholas. Now co-owner of S&S Securities alongside Logan St. James, he's tasked to be close-in security for one of the Dowager Countess of Bumbleridge's grandchildren, Lady Abigail Haddock, aka Dr. Abby Haddock. The same Dr. Abby Haddock who attend to him when he ended up at her hospital's A&E Department and whom he later kissed. For the sake of professionalism, Tommy intends to keep everything above board with Abby, even if she tempts him without doing much other than breathe. Once his time as her bodyguard comes to an end, though, all bets are off. Neither of them is looking for a committed relationship, and maybe keeping things casual without any strings whatsoever is just what they need. So what happens when feelings come into the picture?

This audiobook was every bit as dirty and as charming as I'd hoped it would be, with Arndt and Channing bringing even more dimension to Chase's story. Tommy and Abby were opposites, whether it be in terms of personality or upbringing, Their dynamic was entertaining and there were a lot of lighthearted moments, although this was peppered with some angst, enough to make me quite happy. Figuring out whether or not to act on their attraction and then seeing if what they had was something that was worth pursuing was part of the issues they faced, but it was family involvement (cough, interference, cough) that I think weighed heavily on these two. I really enjoyed Dirty Charmer and can't wait for more from this world Chase has created. 4.5 stars! ♥

Loved it

Dirty Charmer was my first Emma Chase novel and I had no idea what I was missing out on. This was an opposites attract story featuring the uptight, accomplished medical resident from an affluent family and her sexy flirty bodyguard. The story was filled with humor, witty banter, some drama and likable and relatable characters. I loved Tommy and he was absolutely perfect for Abby. These two had intense chemistry and scorching hott steamy scenes and I enjoyed seeing how their relationship blossomed. This is a story that shows how being with the right person can bring out the best in an individual. It gave me all the feel s and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of contemporary romance.
I listened to the audiobook version of this novel and Andi Arndt and Rupert Channing did a fantastic job narrating it. They brought the story to life and embodied the characters. I loved the accents and their voices were clear and understandable. I was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.

Light and fun!

I’ve read/listened to just a handful of Emma Chase’s books, and now that I’ve finished this one, I’m determined to correct that!

Dirty Charmer is a light, fun story. There’s a bit of drama, but not enough to weigh the whole thing down.

The characters are wonderful. I loved that Tommy knew to balance work and play, and I could relate to Abby- I’ve been described as uptight more than a few times!

Andi Arndt and Rupert Channing did a wonderful job narrating. I loved Andi’s British accent and Rupert Channing is a new-to-me narrator whose work I will now be looking out for!

Dirty Charmer is an opposites-attract contemporary romance written in dual first-person POV and recorded in dual narration. It’s a standalone that ends with an HEA. No cliffhanger, no cheating.

I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Andi Arndt does a British accent so well

I was provided an early copy of this from Valentine PR on behalf of the author. My review has not been influenced and my opinion is my own.

I have been a fan of Emma Chase for quite a few years. I only trust her to write Royal romances, honestly.

I've been waiting for Tommy's story it feels like since I first read Royally Matched. And the wait was 100% worth it.

Tommy was everything I was waiting on and Abby? She was perfect for him.

A friend to bodyguard to friends to lover situation is what we have here and Tommy Sullivan is dreamy.

I have missed Emma Chase's writing, but it was so easy to get back into. The Royally series is one of my favourite.
Andi Arndt is on point with her upper crust British Accent and Rupert Channing really brought Tommy to life.

Decent, but not great

I enjoyed some aspects of this book, but there were too many fast forward in time and summary of what’s happened sections for my liking.

Tommy is a favourite!

Tommy Sullivan is everything Abby Haddock needs in her life. He's fun, a bit rough around the edges, and SUCH a charmer!

Poor Abby comes from a family of very high achievers, and feels strongly the intense pressure to measure up. Her life fully revolves around her career, and she desperately needs Tommy in her life to learn how to have some fun. Tommy is just the man for the job and more than willing to step up and give Abby the stress relief she is looking for.

I loved Tommy's character in the Royally series, so it's no surprise he is my favourite character in this book. Loved all of the appearances by characters from the Royally series in Dirty Charmer as well, especially Logan and Ellie.

Really enjoyed the narration for both Abby and Tommy. Andi Arndt performed the highly educated and upper class Abby beautifully, and loved listening to Rupert Channing as the confident and fun Tommy.
